    I need to order a large quanaties of dvd cases. INETDVD has the "spider type" for $0.29 each.

    Could anyone describe what kind of case this is? How good/bad is the hub that holds the disc inplace?

    It is the case used on some cheaper Universal titles like Pitch Black for example. It has 6 stiff prongs that stick up, sort of like a CD jewel case but taller. Not my favorite but not bad for .29, I just bought a bunch of them.

    It's probably the bottom one with the "Killer hub". Everyone should remember this one from when Jurassic Park first came out. Terrible hub, unless you have strong fingers! [​IMG]

    The one that's on top is one of my favorite type of hubs. Doesn't let the disc spin or anything.

    This is a pretty bad DVD case. When I bought Jurassic Park I opened it and some of the prongs were broken off and had scratched up the disc. I wouldn't buy it unless it's the only one you can afford. Also, it has to be placed on soft carpet to be opened easily.[​IMG]

    I never understood the problems people have had getting the disc out of these cases. Unless you have crippling arthritis, getting the disc out shouldn't be any problem.
